Does Three use LTE?

Anonymous

I'm looking at buying a One Plus X but I've heard it often has issues with LTE. I'm using Three's all you can eat PAYG deal. Does Three use LTE in Ireland?

@Anonymous I think your question should be what LTE Bands does Three use, as I see from the one plus X specs the EU Model uses "LTE: Bands 1/3/5/7/8/20"

 

So from looking around, I think these are the LTE Bands That Three Ireland have

Officially Three got for LTE (4G)
900MHz band 9 - 2x5MHz
1800MHz band 3 - 2x20MHz

and  O2 bands: (which Three own now)
800MHz band 20 - 2x10MHz
900MHz band 9 - 2x10MHz
1800MHz band 3 - 2x15MHz

 

So the One Plus X could use the LTE Bands 3 and 20

@Anonymous Hi there, yes we do have LTE(4G) available in many locations across Ireland.  We don't sell the One Plus X ourselves so we can't guarantee that it will work for you. Let me know if you've any more questions. Rachel
